Today was the official Jackson Hole Gathering kickoff day and I encourage anyone with photos, jokes, embarrasing stories etc.... to put them here.
I was part of the Snow King Saturday contingent and there were 9 of us to show up there. I know others were at JHMR and I think most of us will gather tomorrow at Targhee.
I want to acknowledge up front the efforts of Bob Peters and wife Ruth as well as those of HarkinBanks and family for pulling much of this together.
I also want to acknowledge Uncle Louie for stepping up and getting this whole thing started as there was never any concensus after last seasons gathering. He put it out there and focused the attention necessary to get this off the ground(first chair).
Ahead are a few pics from Snow King today.

Batgirl left and Bonni right laughing at me as the lift stopped and they were just barely able to get off at the top while I was dangling in the light winter breeze
